Successful Upgrade is Successful

I would say I can’t believe I’m typing this from a successful full upgrade from Fedora 23 to 24 but I’m not since I am at work and they frown upon me pecking away on my personal laptop, but I am still amazed that it was an absolutely painless process to upgrade from 23 to 24 with dnf.  In prior years it was almost always advisable to reinstall rather than attempt an upgrade from one major release to the next but the fine folks over at Fedora seem to have hit a home run on this one.  Sure it took a while to apply everything but the moment of truth (or reboot) came and passed and all I got was my normal login screen, no fancy explosions of failed video drivers, no corrupted profiles or missing files; it went so smooth I almost didn’t think it worked until I checked the redhat-release file and verified that it was in fact on the 24 release.
